      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Website Advice

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of starting a HSOforum. I have researched a few of the sites where you can purchase an address(domain name...whatever its really called) and just have some questions regarding their services. #1. For my $$$, what do I get? Just the address or are there other services that come with it? #2. I would like to design it myself so do I need to use a specific site or is this possible on just about all of them? Do I need certain software? #3. Are there things I should watch out for? If anyone has experience in this matter and would like to share their experiences/thoughts I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for any help

Hey coach, I use 1and1 dot com. You get your domain and site building tools. It's not all that hard to setup and get going. If I had the time, I would use Joomla for the design, but for the the basic tools they offer are fine. You get FTP acces, 250 email addys, storage space and more features. If you wanna put your email up, I can get a hold of you and send you a reference from them to get you a discount.

Coach, 1 and 1 is good. Just about as good as it gets.

There are tons of free development tools out there if you want to keep it cheap for free. Also there are some free web site template or if you way to pay some money, complete web sites already made that you purchase and just change text. One thing to note for these, is they require you to have like GoLive and/or Flash and/or Photoshop to make these said changes on templates.
